Second stay here - even better than the first a year ago. Comfortable room, kind and friendly staff, good breakfast, and great location in mid-town on the East Side. Made our romantic get away even better. Thanks!

Hotel 48lex staff were attentive and friendly. The hotel and my room were immaculate. The hotel offered many "perks" not offered at other hotels: Daily Wine and cheese reception, European breakfast and evening chocolates. I also took advantage of the prix fix dinner offered at the restaurant adjacent to the hotel. The prix fix was another perk offered to guests...

WOW...! Absolutely fantastic in all respects. It is unique and has a really cool, laid-back New York vibe. The staff, however, take the whole experience of staying at 48Lex somewhere higher; they are superbly professional - very helpful, extremely nice and have a totally modern approach. My wife and I stayed 4 nights last week and loved every minute. On...

Had a fantastic experience thanks to Malvina being a great hostess...I would definitely stay there again. The Lounge is a great spot and the penthouse is 2nd to none in midtown. Great room with a breathtaking view.

We had an amazing experience with Allan. He was so helpful during our early morning check in. He even helped us with our luggage and was able to open the lounge just for us. We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel was beautiful and we will definitely stay here again.

From the moment I came in I felt welcomed but it was even better with Allan. He accommodated us every step of the way. Making sure we had everything we needed and WANTED. I really felt like I could call him for anything. Definitely keep this guy around. It wouldn't have been as great without him.

The staff was extraordinary and went above and beyond to accommodate our needs; particularly Allan. I can't emphasize enough how much his assistance meant to our experience. Wine hour and breakfast make for nice amenities in a convenient spot in midtown.

We fortunately found this hotel on Hotel Tonight for $206.00! We did have a bit of trouble finding it because even though it has a Lexington Avenue address, it is really on 48th Street. When we walked in the door, we were warmly greeted by two lovely, young women, Ivanna and Megan, who seemed really happy to see us! The...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
